is it possible?
is it possible to install gentoo from my kubuntu desktop, because i am using ndiswrapper for my internet connection, which is something that i cant do on the gentoo live CD... i dont really know how to explain this, but i would like to install from inside the KDE environment, at least for the first steps, and i need to rollover my internet connection... jeez.... this is harder to explain than i thought!, well, i guess my point is, can this be done?
